Vancouver Canucks defenseman Nikita Zadorov was handed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for boarding Golden Knights forward Brett Howden in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Vegas.

The incident happened in the dying seconds of the first period with Vegas up 4-1.

Zadorov registered one shot on goal in just over four minutes of ice time before being tossed from the matchup. He also took a penalty for high-sticking earlier in the contest, and Vegas scored on the ensuing power play.

This is Zadorov's second time being ejected from a game this season.

He was shown the door in February following a hit to the head of Detroit Red Wings forward Lucas Raymond. The rearguard was subsequently suspended two games.
